      My husband and I had reached a point where we weren't communicating outside of polite conversation.  Our therapist at Rejuvenation House provided a safe, accepting place where we could learn to make time for each other and listen again.



   My schedule is sometimes to hectic to squeeze another item in.  It is so convenient to have Rejuvenation House's secured video session as an option when I can't make it into the therapist's office.

      My wife and I wanted to move forward in our relationship but we were struggling with forgiveness.  The staff at Rejuvenation House really helped


   Thee is a difference between wanting to change and making a change.  I felt like my addiction was running my life and I no longer had the choice.  Cherri helped my re-frame my thinking and take control again.
